Easter is not just a day. It is a 50 day long celebration that begins with Easter Sunday and goes until the feast of Pentecost. This is an opportunity to celebrate Christ’s resurrection daily. Each Sunday we proclaim the good news. Make this 1/7th of the year a joy filled time.

“Alleluia! Christ is risen. He is risen indeed. Alleluia!”


  • Field Day 5/25 is an early dismissal day? It didn’t clearly say that on our calendar but it is a 1pm dismissal.
  • We are excited to again partner with the university of Portland’ PACE program. Ms. Kealey Johnson will be teaching 4th grade next year, as she works on completing a Master’s Degree in Education.
  • ACT Aspire testing continues next week (4/24-5/1) 3rd, 4th & 5th. No studying necessary J Just a good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast each morning.
  • We are here to answer questions! Any time you hear something that you want more information about or concerns you, please call the office or me at 801-572-5311.
  • We have a Refer-A-Family Program. If you refer a family and they register their child you are eligible for a cash reward! Tell your friends about our great school.
  • Only 2 days till Springfest!

SPRINGEST is here!!!! This year’s event will be something special. I hope to see many of you there as we go “Back to the 80s.” Can you believe that our school began 30 years ago?! Monsignor Bob, Sr. Barbara & Sr. Sharon certainly planted some very fertile seeds.

Peace and blessings,

Bryan Penn,

Our fabulous production of The Jungle Book is NEXT WEEK! Please plan to attend and see what our middle school, chorus, choir and talented staff have been working on! The play starts at 6:30 in the gym. See you there!!


Dear Parents and Community Members,
Help support Blessed Sacrament’s Middle School production of the Jungle Book. Any amount will be helpful to go toward the cost of the production: costuming, set & scenery, lighting, license and show kit for the Disney production. All donations will be greatly appreciated.
Please send your check to Blessed Sacrament School. Indicate in the memo that these monies are for the benefit of the play. Make checks payable to Blessed Sacrament School.
Thank You for Your Support…
Blessed Sacrament Play Committee

Today, April 20th, all day long Parishioners, School Families, Friends can make use of the attached certificate at the California Pizza Kitchen restaurant at the Fashion Place Mall for dine in, take out, curbside, online and catering orders. By presenting the certificate/flyer Blessed Sacrament will realize 20% of all sales throughout the day. This is a great deal, as patrons will get a great meal and the Parish potentially gets a sizable donation. 20% is unheard of at other equivalent establishments.

The folks at California Pizza Kitchen are great supporters of Blessed Sacrament and we hope to fill their restaurant all day today.

The 2017 Book fair will be April 24 – 28. We will be set up before, during, and after the school play on April 27, 2017.
We could use Volunteers to help with the Book Fair that will be running during the Jungle Book. If you are interested, please contact Tim Malone in the library at

The 5th Grade will be having a Pizza Party tomorrow to celebrate their Box Tops victory! Please do not send a lunch with your 5th grader.
